The Barn – Woolley Edge October Screams 2014

the-barn-bedroomThe Barn, which is part of the annual October Screams Halloween event is just one of many haunted attractions that has recently opened in the UK, thanks to the demand of a growing fan population there. Here in the United States, Halloween is big, big business – over $10 billion annually, according to some experts in the industry. It’s only natural that fans around the world have taken to the spooky themes of haunted attractions for immersive and interactive experiences; and it’s only natural that business developers and creatives across the pond have started tapping into this extremely lucrative genre for themselves.

Theme Park Adventure loves haunted attractions, the people that create and run them, and of course, the fans – because that’s what we are on an extremely large and geeky scale when it comes down to it! We have friends and TPAers in every of the world, including all over the UK. That’s why we are really excited when we have the opportunity to share haunted attractions with TPAers from different parts of the world that many of us will never get to visit in person.

White Monocled Cobra Now on Display at San Diego Zoo

Monocled Cobra at San Diego ZooA venomous white monocled cobra that made headline news in early September, when it was reported loose in a semi-rural neighborhood in Thousand Oaks, moved into her new home earlier today at the San Diego Zoo’s Klauber-Shaw Reptile House. While the female snake appeared a bit shy initially, it didn’t take her long to explore the habitat filled with mulch, live plants and rock ledges, providing her places to hide.

“This morning was the first time the cobra was placed in her new home at the Reptile House,” said Rachael Walton, a keeper at San Diego Zoo. “We expect it may take her a few weeks to get used to her new surroundings. Being a cobra, she likes to hide, so visitors to the Zoo may want to look closely under the rock ledge or in the planter bank in her enclosure to get a good glimpse of her.” Keepers will monitor the snake closely to ensure her new environment provides her the optimal opportunity to thrive and exhibit species-specific behaviors.
